>General Running>Trying to ONLY run 26.2 miles in a marathon
I understand the sphere of probably location pretty well, still appreciate your explanation. I have to challenge your description of every track point being off from the actual location by the sphere of probable location distance -- that's not correct. That is the maximum it will be off from the actual point when the sample is taken.
Feeling the growl again
The 14ft wouldn't be a maximum bound on the error. It's a probable bound on the error. I have no idea what the probability that the error is within the quoted accuracy, but I'm sure it's less than 100%. You're right that it will be less than that number most of the time.
If you're interested in GPS accuracy statistics, check out the following link for an expert discussion of how these things are computed. It is technical, so be forwarned:

I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)
Yeah the best solution is to just not race with your Garmin. I don't get that...too much (possibly incorrect) info. Just race.
